Lost anti-topple device

Hi everyone,

I just moved, and in the process, lost the anti-topple device for my Markör bookcase. I can't find any information on ordering a new one from IKEA. Does anyone have the measurements for the screw so I can get the right size at the hardware store to replace it?

Thank you.

He @sometimes and welcome. Just get an L-bracket from your local hardware store.

If it was a braided flat ropey type thing, I have a few as spares in my spare parts bags. I can send to you if you contact me by PM . Just click on my name next to this post, then click on Send Private Message.

Re: Lost anti-topple device

sometimes - your strap went out in the mail yesterday morning and should be to you by tomorrow.

Thanks to you and this post, I got re-inspired! We were able to raise awareness with over 250 new views of Save a Child's Life: Prevent Furniture Tip-Overs through retweets of the article on Twitter and a bunch of shares on Facebook. I sent out an additional five straps to people who helped to spread the word!

That said, if anyone needs an anti-topple device, I still have several straps, an L-bracket and some mounting brackets for AKURUM cabinets that slide into the mounting rail. Shipping (except for the hefty AKURUM mounting hardware) will be free - I only ask that you spread the word by sharing the link to the article Save a Child's Life: Prevent Furniture Tip-Overs and help to raise awareness.

Thanks in advance!

Susan

Re: Lost anti-topple device

Thanks Susan! I got the device today and am just about to install it.

I'm glad the word is getting out and happy to have helped.

Thanks again from me and my cat who likes to climb shelves!

Hi Susan -

Would you be able to help me with an anti topple strap as well? I just moved and managed to misplace the strap. Now, my Benno DVD tower is looking precarious.

Much appreciation in advance -
-Heather.
